Academic Work

PhD Research

University of Sheffield - Department of Politics

Supported by both the White Rose DTP and the Stuart Hall Foundation, I will be exploring the psychological mechanisms that work on audiences when they engage with art. The aim is to understand how theatre, poetry, or film influences our political behaviour and opinions. My focus will be on art that produces or resists white supramacy.
